Carlyle to manage $150M investment fund for Indiana

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Washington, D.C.-based Carlyle Group LP, the world’s second-biggest private-equity firm, was awarded a contract to manage a new $150 million investment fund on behalf of the Indiana Public Retirement System.

Carlyle and fund-of-funds investor AlpInvest Partners BV have opened an office in Indianapolis to manage Indiana Investment Fund II, Carlyle said in a prepared statement Monday. The fund will invest directly in deals, alongside other buyers, in private-equity funds, in real estate and credit, and in other opportunities directly or indirectly related to Indiana, according to the statement.

Curt Rossman, who managed the Public Employees Retirement System's Indiana Investment Fund I for Credit Suisse, has been hired by Carlisle to manage the Indiana office. Rossman previously worked for Lilly BioVentures and managed three life sciences funds started by Biocrossroads

Big private-equity investors such as public pension funds have turned to separately managed accounts to negotiate cheaper fees and retain some control in investment decisions, in exchange for locking up their money for a decade or more. Carlyle in 2011 struck a deal with the Municipal Employees’ Retirement System of Michigan to manage as much as $250 million in a separate account.

“By investing capital here in Indiana, INPRS achieves the dual goal of targeting premium rates of returns while nurturing Hoosier entrepreneurs and their businesses,” Steve Russo, the Indiana pension’s executive director, said in the statement.

Indiana’s pension system oversees $27.2 billion, serving 447,000 members and retirees, according to the statement.

Carlyle last week re-branded its funds-of-funds unit with the hire of Morgan Stanley’s Jacques Chappuis, who will run the solutions business when he joins the firm’s New York office in May. Carlyle will task Chappuis with creating new offerings for investors, including customized accounts, fund-of-funds investments, portfolio advice and risk management.

  1. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

  3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

  4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

  5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
